First, The use of the name attribute in that manner is deprecated. It should be <a id="one">. Note that I changed the actual value from 1 to one since IDs cannot begin with a number.

I know of one way to do what but it only works in Firefox 2 based on my tests between that, Internet Explorer 7 and Opera 9. Basically, you assign an ID to the html element of the containing document and link to the the containing document via a target attribute. Thus:

<a href="containing.html#one" target="HTML Element ID">

Im not sure if both documents actually get reloaded or not because Firefox has session storage which allows it to remember scroll positions. I do know of another way to do this, but it definitely results in both the containing and framed documents being reloaded.

What you want to do is probably best done using a frameset document type. It seems to me that inline frames are primarily meant to be one‐way, unlike the frames of a frameset document.
